king o' da hill

August 1st, 2006

One of the most beloved characters of the blog is back: the king! While he got some stick from me for serenading English football, he's back with a vengeance. This time he accepted an invitation to celebrate the Pakistani national holiday from the Norwegian Pakistani community. :cool::party: Pakistani politician for Høyre, Aamir J. Sheik, said his eyes teared up at the news. :D

Pakistanis are the biggest minority group in the Oslo region and possibly in the country as a whole. When I was growing up in Holmlia, it was known as an immigrant suburb (nowadays it's a bit more prosperous place) and I knew tons of Pakistanis. One of which was Omar, the best player on my football team, Holmlia SK, who tried to teach me that trick where you loop the ball over your head, but to this day I haven't mastered that. :D
